the huffington post this morning. here it is, "romney wins the night." this is from "the hill" newspaper. in "the hill" again -- that is from "the hill." here is "politico." that is from "politico." time to hear from you. the first presidential debate is over. we're going to begin with old c- span watcher joe in the georgia. caller: i thought it was a tremendous win for mitt romney. can you hear me ok? host: we are listening. caller: i think this is a game changer. i think he will be elected and he will be the greatest president in the history of the country. i could not even sleep last night. i thought it was a total home run. i am so fired up. everybody at the barbecue was so excited. i do not have the words to say -- i will turn it on like anything you have ever seen for the next five weeks. he will be the best president in history. host:next is ann, a president obama supporter. caller: good morning. i think exactly the opposite. i think mitt romney looked almost manic and his appearance. i have never seen him flailing his arms around. he told so many lies. he completely turned around all of t
% or partisans. democracy first, a democratic polling firm. romney has a good night, but no evidence of changing the game. i agree with them completely on the first that romney had a good night. i think we will have to see a minute whether it changed the game. walmart sponsored their walmart focus groups with momentum analysis, a democratic polling firm, one of glen's partners together. they suggested a monster lot of walmart moms, it was a win for romney. the people in the groups were divided between a win for romney or a tie. on the other hand, it said they were disappointed with the president's performance. they do not think he made the case for how another four years would be better. they made the point that neither one of these guys really connected with voters on a personal level, but i think romney did a superior job of debating it. we will be seeing a lot of reviews over the next few days. i think the key thing for us to watch, no question mitt romney won the debate. how much does this change things? in national polls he will get a few points out of this. the more relevant. is that, numb
common math. mitt romney told america lies last night, and the sad thing about it is that so many poor and middle-class americans will believe them all because he looked as if he bullied a moderator. "oh, he is going to make a great president --" >> on what particular thing did he lie? >> like the president pointed out, he said a few years ago that we did not need any more teachers, ok? now last night, he said that he is not going to get rid of teachers, just like he told us about how he is going to save american money. >> donald from clarksville, virginia. this is julie. go ahead. >> i think that the president did very well last night. i think he took the high road by not getting into arguments about what romney was doing. as far as he was going to keep teachers -- i'm still amazed that he looked jim lehrer right in the face and said "i am going to cut pbs." i think the president just stood back and let it romney talk. i am not a middle-aged woman. i have been on disability now for a -- i am a middle-aged woman. i've been on disability now for about eight years to hear -- for about ei
showed the people won the -- mitt romney won the debate last night. -- on our facebook page, a majority of people said that mitt romney won the debate last night. who did you think one? caller: i think it was mitt romney. >> let's go to our next call from oregon. caller: i was really impressed with that debate last night. we need a good businessman. i think we need some new energy and new ideas. spending is out of control. we need a party that can get it under control and i think it is a romney and ryan. 6 politics aside. we have too much government in our lives. >> we need to put politics aside. we have too much government in our lives. >> we have taken the debates and broken into topic areas. joe biden is out campaigning in iowa. he talked about what he thought the president did last night. >> i thought the president did well. you never know what game that governor romney will come out with. the centerpiece of the economic policies so far has been tax cuts. last night we found out that he does not -- i guess the outdoors that to china -- outsourced that to china. i don't know. i think
guess is that an% were partisan-- that 10% were partisans. and i read that romney had a good night, but no evidence of change in the game. we will have to wait a couple days whether it changed the game. walmart sponsored focus groups with a democratic polling firm and others and it suggested that among walmart moms, it was a win for romney. the people in the group were divided between a win for romney or a tie. it says they were disappointed with the president's performance. they don't believe he made the case for our and other four years would be different or better. but it made the point that neither one of these guys really connected with voters on a personal level, but clearly the romney did a superior job of debating. so we will see a lot of reviews over the next few days. i think the key thing for us to watch is there's no question romney won the debate. the question is how much does this change things? in terms of national polls, he's going to get a few points out of this. but the more relevant points, does the move ohio and does he moved the swing voters in the swing states
reaction to last night and what it means? >> first of all, as a yankees fan, a nats fan, and a romney fan, it was a pretty good night. thank you for having fred and i. these are always fun to do. i am a huge fan of your jet engines, utc, particularly when they work. i am still here, so that is a great sign. the tw factors from last night, how much did mitt romney raise his image? we have seen a number of polls showing 2 to 3 points. mitt romney came across as somebody who was more genuine that they it -- than they had realized. this guy could step into the oval office and have no problems doing it. i am not sure that any other republican running in the primaries would have been able to pull that off last night. and i am being generous. [laughter] what i wonder is, we do our dialing between 5:00 and 9:00 p.m. on the west coast, how do you do a national poll tax everybody is going to bed -- on the east coast, how do you do a national poll? everybody is going to bed. among undecideds -- look, the first decision they make is, do i want to vote for barack obama? he is the incumbent, the guy in
. the fellow onstage last night said he did not know anything about that. the real mitt romney said we do not need any more teachers in our classrooms. [booing] don't boo -- vote. but the fellow onstage last night, he loves teachers, cannot get enough of them. the mitt romney we all know invested in companies that were called pioneers of the outsourcing jobs to other countries. but he got onstage last night, he said that he does not even know that there are such laws that encourage outsourcing. he has never heard of them. never heard of them. never heard of tax breaks for companies who ship jobs overseas. he said if it is true, must need a new accountant. we know for sure it was not the real big trouble because he seems to be doing just fine with his current accountant. the man onstage last night does not want to be held accountable for mitt romney's decisions and what he has been saying for the last year. we know we do not want what he has been saying for the last year. governor romney made the answer on his positions, but if you want to be president, you owe the american people the trut
that governor romney had. governor romney had a good night. this was a very strong performance by governor romney. he needed one and i think he got it. >> mitt romney did himself a lot of good tonight. he was there on the issues. he did not back down to the president or the moderator and he did not cross the line. you can do that, and i think that would have backfired on him. i watched obama debate alive in primaries when i was with clinton -- debate a lot in primaries. this is the guy that showed up. he is a good debater, but doesn't enjoy it. you look through this debate, ann romney looked like he enjoyed it and was having fun. obama just looked sort of sour and it was like another headache that he had to be there. romney support is needed to be reinvigorated. the question is, what did happen with the undecideds. is that enthusiasm going to spread out in terms of who is going to vote. >> was their body language that you noticed? >> i thought both of them behaved with considerable dignity and courtesy to each other, which people like. as meaghan pointed out, the president was continually
face in november. as governor romney outlined on wednesday night, he has a clear specific plan the mitt romney paul ryan plan for a stalker middle-class is expected to create 12 million jobs over the next four years. governor romney has a plan to cut taxes for middle-class americans. atlanta achievement north american energy in -- independence. and international affairs, governor romney will not apologize to our adversaries. he would champion peace through strength and protect our interests and ideals. how can we be sure he can get the job done? it is simple. he has a record. unlike president obama's reichert, mitt romney's record is a record of success. he started successful companies and state failing ones. he records the 20 -- 2002 olympics and it became a source of national pride. as governor, he balanced every budget, cut taxes, improved education, and reduced unemployment rate in the coming debates, the contras will grow sharper and the choice clear. if we want to do better, then the last four years, there is only one choice to make. that is governor mitt romney. thank you, god b
wednesday night, everybody's pretty comfortable with mitt romney. >> you were early. looking back i was reading back on your twitter feed last night and even back in february, you were saying conservatives should support mitt romney. >> yes. >> is that because he was the best of the field or you really feel good about his conservative credentials? >> i ran off as a biker for a while. i was totally with chris christie. two years ago. in my defense, people still thought varius congressmen who didn't even run were going to be the candidates. it was two cpacs away from the presidential election. because it's so hard to beat an incumbent president, i still love chris christie and i hope he does run for president someday. he was so brave in the way he took on the public sector unions the way no republican had ever done before and everybody loved it. and he was just so articulate and bright. and he had become this star. i thought we would probably lose this election. because you can't take out an incumbent. especially one who's personally likable as obama is. and then for one thing, chris
